Sucre joined forces with Invisible Children for their latest video, “When We Were Young.”
The only thing better than an incredible music video is an incredible music video for an incredible cause — in this case, Invisible Children. Pop-folk trio Sucré — Stacy Dupree-King from Eisley, her husband and drummer Darren King from MUTEMATH and composer Jeremy Larson — are sharing their new live “When We Were Young,” and they’re being good Samaritans while they’re at it.
Watch Sucré’s “When We Were Young” live video after the jump.
Filmed in the abandoned zoo in Los Angeles’ Griffith Park, the video for “When We Were Young” is simple, clean and crisp. As she stands amongst the trees, Stacy is surrounded by a full string section that accompanies her live. While the video provides stunning visuals and Stacy’s honeyed vocals are tough to ignore, it’s the underlying message that the band is truly aiming to illuminate.
The video was created by Invisible Children, an organization that aims to stop the longest-running war in Africa, to end the abduction of innocent children forced into fighting and to rebuild schools and provide education and jobs in northern Uganda. Sucré isn’t the only artist supporting Invisible Children — the organization has worked with heavyweights like Mumford & Sons, Death Cab For Cutie, Deer Tick, and Nada Surf, to name a few.
